Google Android gets a 'find my phone' service from Google, for 2.2 and above.

Have you ever lost your phone in between the couch cushions or forgot it in a restaurant? Or maybe searching for your phone before you rush out the door is part of your morning routine? Later this month, the new Android Device Manager can help you out. It's one of a few simple features you can use to keep your device - and the data you store inside - safe and secure.

About time.

Just having your phone number and name will get them far if they call your bank.


It wouldn't get them anywhere with my bank. Customer service wants your full name, address, DOB, answers to two secret questions and a password to access your account.
